Filipino Consumer Alert

OFWs = $$

Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) remitted close to $12 billion last year. That's very big money and definitely more dollars came in to our country via our kababayans than was brought by some of our export products.

Working overseas was not easy for most but they strive to give their family members especially those who are left in the Philippines a better standard of living.

Unfortunately, those money remittances seemed like blood to those 'sharks' hiding within the confines of well established and legitimate businesses and also from those fly-by-night operations. They got to have a piece of the action. They always hone for a next gullible victim.
